Complex but sluggish engineering environment
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Aurora, CONovember 18, 2016
IIS develops very complex systems. There is a tremendous amount of domain knowledge within the company. The main fault with the company is that these large unwieldy programs are being strangulated with an ill fitting agile/scrum management implementation (not to be confused with an actual engineering methodology).
Pros
Great people and co-workers
Cons
There is no work-life balance, The agile/scrum management implementation fosters a culture of failure, and artificial emergency.

Media Specialist (Former Employee) –  Goleta, CAOctober 31, 2016
Routine/repetition in daily tasks most of the time. Was given the opportunity to be cross trained in a publications department. My former immediate manager valued employee opinions whereas current management doesn't appear to care. Mixed, some were back stabbers to benefit themselves. The hardest part of the job was trying to work past the negatives.
Pros
Compensation, Benefits and employee discount program
Cons
Managements viewpoint of
